Ampex tape gurus, got a ? for you...

Is it true that the record and reproduce electronics in the ampex mm1200 are the same, or at the very least, very similar to those in the ampex ag-440 machines?

So will an 8 track one inch ag-440b/c sound like a 16 track 2 inch mm1200?

I have heard that the electronics are very similar but the transport on the mm1200 is vastly superior to the ag-440's and of course the cosmetics are different. But the guts are pretty much the same, yes?
